Recent 2022 Events
April — Tour of the Cottage Estate, Lubenham. Two members’ tours were arranged for this event. We hope all that attended enjoyed learning more about the Cottage Estate, which once belonged to Jack “Cherry” Angell. Our thanks go to Linda and David for all the hard work they put in to the visit, especially for opening up their houses and showing us their exhibitions in the Tower House and Gore Lodge. Many of you had heard of the Cottage Estate and now you know the history and its importance in the life of Lubenham.
